Homemade Bag Gripping Aid
Person kneeling on wood floor holding large white plastic bag with stone tied in end of it and held with rubber band

For one with limited hand strength, gripping to lift a bag with feed, fertilizer, mulch, grass clippings, etc., can be difficult. This Homemade Bag Gripping Aid may provide the solution. It involves inserting and twisting into the bag's flexible lip a small ball (e.g., golf ball) or a stone, then tying it off with string or a rubber band. This creates a spherical "handle" that allows for lifting the bag with the entire hand, rather than having to squeeze it with just the fingers.
